Dental Bridge at Mountain View, CA
A natural-looking and fully functional dental bridge created by Mountain View restorative dentists Dr. Bill Hall, Dr. Tiffany Chan, and Dr. J. Janice Chou is an easy and affordable solution to your missing teeth.
Dentures and false teeth have been used for a long time to hide gaps in teeth so that people do not feel self-conscious while smiling or talking. Dentures and false teeth can easily be removed and cleaned, but there is a significantly better and permanent alternative to these measures. Dental bridges are used to fill the gaps between people’s teeth. They are cemented onto the existing teeth and have two anchoring teeth on either side of the gap; they hold a false tooth in place. The false tooth can be made from a material of your choice such as gold, alloys, porcelain, etc.
Do you need Dental Bridges?
There are many reasons why one would get a dental bridge. The most common reasons are:
- Restore decayed and cracked teeth to their former state.
- Improve the condition of teeth that are worn out and in a state of deterioration.
- Enhance your appearance through cosmetic modifications.
- Combat the stains and discolorations on teeth that have appeared over time.
What are the Benefits of Dental Bridges?
Dental Bridges are extremely useful for maintaining the shape of your face and your smile. They bridge the gap between teeth and keep them intact in their original position. The best part of a dental bridge is that it does not require periodic check-ups and lasts for a long period without deteriorating.
How does the Procedure Work?
The dentist shapes the teeth around the gap so that the bridge can easily fit between them. Once the remaining teeth are shaped satisfactorily, the dentist constructs a mould that can be fit into the gap. Using this mould, a bridge is made in the material of your choice. While the permanent bridge is being constructed, a temporary bridge is placed between the teeth. Once the permanent bridge is ready to be placed, it is cemented to the teeth. This ensures that the teeth appear uniform and natural.
How Long do Dental Bridges Last?
Dental Bridges are long-lasting, but they may get loose or fall out with time. To ensure that you get the most out of your Dental Bridges, it is important to practice good oral hygiene. Visit your dentist as well, for guidance and regular touch-ups.
